    “Thanks to the foundation of self-supporting national economy, scientific and technical forces trained with our own efforts and their clear heads, there are no difficulties insurmountable for us despite the enemies’ sanctions of 10 years or for 100 years,” he said, speaking at the State Academy of Sciences on Friday. 

    Pyongyang has recently held several missile tests, with the most recent Hwasong-15 launch having taken place in November. NK frequently boasts that its intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) are capable of hitting the entire US mainland.
